MILL自2013年成立以来，专注于威士忌与鸡尾酒，陆续与Remy Martin、Hennessy、Pernod Ricard、IWS等公司合作。MILL南山路店在2019年被SMWS（苏格兰麦芽威士忌协会）授权为全球合作酒吧之一，成为中国第15家SMWS合作酒吧。同一年，MILL与亚太区最强酒水公司PROOF & COMPANY建立合作，PROOF公司将为MILL提供品牌支持、产品研发与专业培训。乐堤港店是MILL旗下第七家店，从其谐音lè dī gǎng衍生出粤语 “ 楽D講 ” （lè dī gǎng）口号，意为“快乐地说”，鼓励大家勇于表达，传递快乐。入口门厅采用霓虹灯管线性阵列，与建筑玻璃幕墙相呼应，打造未来感的时空隧道，在夜晚时分格外绚烂。
Since its establishment in 2013, MILL has been focusing on Whisky and cocktail, continuously cooperating with top brands such as Remy Martin, Hennessy, Pernod Ricard, IWS, etc. MILL Nanshan Road was authorized as one of the global cooperated bars by SMWS in 2019, making itself the 15th SMWS cooperating bar in China. In the same year, MILL built up bonds of cooperation with PROOF & COMPANY, which is the most powerful beverage company in Asia Pacific area. PROOF will support MILL in branding, product R&D and professional training. The one in Grand Canal Place is the 7th store of MILL. The homo-phonic pronunciation of its Chinese characters is “楽D講” in Cantonese, which means “talking with pleasure”, encouraging everybody to express themselves and pass the happiness on and on. As for the entrance lobby, linear array of neon tube is adopted to echo with glass curtain wall of the building, creating a time tunnel with sense of future. This area is splendid during the nights.

The interior design is based on the original spacial structure of the building, separating the store into two areas. The outer area is for craft beer and machine-made cocktail, with a tone of black, extending the linear concept of facade into interior. From overhead illumination, metal wine shelves to the floor and wall decoration, the lines are integrated neatly and regularly, making perfect closed cycle.

主吧台背景用霓虹灯勾勒出“NO CRITICISM”字样，意为“不接受批评”。看似桀骜不驯，实则想通过不断努力来获得肯定。嚣张自我的表面下隐藏着细腻敏感的心。吧台上空采用了艺术家蔡烈超的灯具装置 — 马扎灯1.0。其设计源自中国传统坐具“马扎”，电线巧妙地隐藏进灯具的悬吊丝线中，灯具系统裸露的金属零件也被设计成了电路的一部分，由此构成了一个内在复杂但外观简洁的模块化结构系统。在2019年4月的米兰展上，蔡烈超推出了独立个展，马扎灯首次亮相。
The background of main bar counter is characters of “NO CRITICISM” made by neon tube. It seems rebellious, but in fact, it means to get appreciation by constant endeavor. There is delicate and sensitive heart under aggressive and egotistical surface. The lights above the bar counter is MAZHA 1.0 from Mario Tsai. The design is originated from a traditional Chinese seating tool “Mazha”. The electric wires are concealed into the hanging threads of the lights, and the exposing metal parts are also designed into a part of electric circuit.

The background of deck area is exposed red brick, with natural revelation of cement jointing trace. Circular water ripple panels are fitted in the center of wall. It’s a crashing of contemporary delicacy and primitive roughness, presenting the tolerance and fashion-forwardness of MILL.

At the end of cocktail area, there is an independent room for 8 people, meeting clients’ demand of privacy. People familiar with MILL Nanshan Road must be impressed by the vintage bulb matrix, and this technique is adopted again in this private room. The vintage bulbs are replaced with wine bottle lights of MILL 7, becoming a special feature of MILL series.

The back door of MILL Grand Canal Place opens to the shopping mall, and the facade is decorated with copper plating metal penal in integration, leaving space only for a small arched door. A small path opens to an incredible place, and the clients can take the steps into the bar if they like. At the outer side of the door, there is only a small circular hole with mirror. When the clients want to see through out of curiosity, it turns out to be their own surprised faces, they cannot help smiling.
